The Museum of the Revolution

The Museum of the Revolution may be the most impressive museum in Cuba.  Once, this magnificent building served as the Presidential Palace.  Now, it stands as a tribute to the Revolution and the events leading up to it.  Outside, there is a tank which was used by Fidel Castro to direct the troops at the Bay of Pigs.

Inside the museum, there is a long history of the struggle.  There are many models of battles, newspaper clippings about the Revolution and the times that came after, and equipment used by the revolutionaries.  Also outside is the ship the revolutionaries came over on, the Granma.
